Starring: John Boyega, Scott Eastwood, Charlie Day, Tian Jing, Rinko Kikuchi, Burn Gorman, Cailee Spaeny
Director: Steven S. DeKnight
Four years ago, Director Guillermo del Toro (Blade II, Hellboy, Pan’s Labyrinth) brought us one ambitious visual fest set in the future. Earth is at war with the Kaiju, colossal creatures that have emerged from the bottom of the Pacific Ocean. To combat the beasts, humanity unites to create Jaegers, massive humanoid mechs controlled by at least two pilots. I would delve in more, but I’ll refrain for those who need to catch up. I didn’t expect to enjoy the film as much as I did and really hoped the U.S. audience would agree. Even though the film earned many positive reviews, the film drastically under-performed in the United States. That would be the end of the story but lucky for us, in the foreign markets the film did extraordinarily well. Today at the Pacific Rim : Uprising event at the New York Comic Con, they showed the audience This week, our first real look on what to expect.
Legendary/Universal have also released and official synopsis of the upcoming film.
“The globe-spanning conflict between otherworldly monsters of mass destruction and the human-piloted super-machines built to vanquish them was only a prelude to the all-out assault on humanity in Pacific Rim Uprising.
John Boyega (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) stars as the rebellious Jake Pentecost, a once-promising Jaeger pilot whose legendary father gave his life to secure humanity’s victory against the monstrous “Kaiju.” Jake has since abandoned his training only to become caught up in a criminal underworld. But when an even more unstoppable threat is unleashed to tear through our cities and bring the world to its knees, he is given one last chance to live up to his father’s legacy by his estranged sister, Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi)—who is leading a brave new generation of pilots that have grown up in the shadow of war. As they seek justice for the fallen, their only hope is to unite together in a global uprising against the forces of extinction.
Jake is joined by gifted rival pilot Lambert (The Fate of the Furious’ Scott Eastwood) and 15-year-old Jaeger hacker Amara (newcomer Cailee Spaeny), as the heroes of the PPDC become the only family he has left. Rising up to become the most powerful defense force to ever walk the earth, they will set course for a spectacular all-new adventure on a towering scale.
Pacific Rim Uprising is directed by Steven S. DeKnight (Netflix’s Daredevil, STARZ’s Spartacus) and also stars Jing Tian, Burn Gorman, Adria Arjona and Charlie Day.”
The Jaeger versus Kaiju battle continues on March 23, 2018!
